I carry a stainless steel cup that originally cost me $4.00 some years ago.

This cup goes on every hiking trip no matter the location, distance or time duration and has provided many a cup of hot tea while sitting around the campfire. The cup sits perfectly on a MSR PocketRocket or Whisperlite stove and is equally comfortable sitting in or beside a wood fueled campfire.

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
